From five-star treatments to swoon-worthy décor, the very best of Irish wellness and relaxation is celebrated each year at this event, which this year saw a glittering cast of the industry’s finest father at the elegant Intercontinental Dublin for the awards ceremony.
Irish Tatler editor Shauna O’Halloran said: “This is the 10th year of the Irish Tatler Spa Awards and we’re incredibly proud to hold such an important role in supporting the wonderful spa hotels on this island. We have amazing luxury spas to offer in Ireland, and with hotel bookings and high end staycations being once again on the up, there is nothing but good news for the Irish spa industry today.”
Designed to harness the power of the tranquillity of Lough Leane, the spa has been created with natural and holistic elements in mind. However, their contemporary luxury style is underpinned by ‘nothing is too much trouble’ service – this is the place where everybody knows your name and they’re always glad you came.
An elegant and contemporary spa that runs alongside this small luxury hotel in Cork, what really makes this place stand out is that therapists feel their work is more of a calling than a job. This is really tangible in the way they approach treatments and with none more so than the fabulous Rachel O’ Malley whose desire to bring wellbeing to her clients is a joy to witness.
In this adult only spa on an estate dating back to the 1600s, The Spa at Farnham Estate really thinks about the experience that they offer guests, from the water mint thermal suite to the Kneipp walk. Their Lavender Lullaby is the cherry on top, a delicious treatment offering a light, rhythmic massage using warm lavender infused herbal poultices and aromatherapy oils to quieten the mind and soothe muscles. The treatment includes a facial cleanse, full body Balinese massage, a facial massage and a scalp massage.
It is no wonder this place won the Peoples’ Choice Award, The Ice House is a place with a fabulous story – steeped in history, it is strategically positioned on the Moy estuary where tons of wild salmon were preserved here under ice before being shipped to the markets. Today it is a contemporary spa that makes the most of its breathtaking surroundings with lots of long glass windows and plenty of natural light.
Year on year this spectacular destination is an award winning spa and hotel, and little wonder why. A decadent hotel with a spa and grounds to match, details such as the orangery, Celtic sauna, snow cabin and River House for classes, raised on stilts and with views over the cascading River Maine, really set it apart.
